As part of a ‘Jobs Reset,’ the World Economic Forum urged businesses to fire unvaccinated employees on Monday.
The now-deleted tweet read, “Get your COVID-19 jab – or face repercussions from your boss #COVID19 #JobsReset21.” The tweet was followed by a graphic depicting the percentage of businesses that would fire workers if they refused to take the vaccine, according to a survey.
An article on the WEF website that was linked in the posts made various claims based on polling data such as, “Forty percent of companies surveyed in a new report require all employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19,” “Employees will be encouraged but not required to get a jab by 32% of companies,” and, “Mental health concerns and burn-out have risen up the agenda since the onset of the pandemic.”
The WEF abruptly removed the tweet after receiving widespread criticism, and on Tuesday, secretly posted the same graphic and link but with a different caption: “Survey: Would workers be needed to get the COVID-19 vaccination? #JobsReset21 #COVID19“. The comments section of the new post was quickly filled with screenshots of the first, now-deleted tweet.
Information on the WEF website describes some of the topics that will be discussed at the 2021 Jobs Reset forum in Geneva, Switzerland, such as “Fighting systemic racism: 56 companies form global coalition to bring racial justice to the workplace,” described as “A new Forum initiative supported by corporate leaders aims to set new global standards for racial and ethnic justice in business.”
As National File previously reported, the Great Reset is a concept first introduced by the WEF that was enthusiastically endorsed by Canadian Prime minister Justin Trudeau as a potential positive byproduct of the Covid-19 pandemic.
